JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A small group of well-wishers gathered in front of the state Capitol during the noon hour to encourage Alaska lawmakers on the first day of the new legislative session.

The event was part of the Juneau Police Department’s campaign to promote kindness throughout the community in 2017.

Dee Ojard is part of the steering committee for the effort. She says the event was intended to convey support, a sense of, “We’re all in this together and we want success.”

The department has encouraged residents to commit daily acts of kindness and to reach out weekly to individuals outside their usual circles.
